McLaren’s latest flagship supercar, the 720S, made its debut earlier this year at the Geneva International Motor Show as a successor to the 650S. Powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 which produces 730 PS and reaches a top speed of 341 km/h, its starting price of approximately $260,000 US allows only a select few to get their hands on one. Now, however, almost anyone can pickup a McLaren 720S for $16.
The British marque has announced that together with Lego, they will be adding the 720S into the new Speed Champions line which already features the P1 among a variety of other supercars. The package is said to be available beginning June and will also feature a designer minifigure and a studio desk complete with coffee cup, original sketch and a 3D-printed model aside from the 720S.
“The LEGO interpretation of the McLaren 720S reflects the most exciting part of the design process, when a two-dimensional sketch is transformed into a physical, three-dimensional model,” commented McLaren Automotive Chief Designer, Rob Melville.“Building a model like this gives the next generation of McLaren enthusiasts a taste of just how exhilarating that moment is for designers.”
It is available for builders aged 7 plus, but it is safe to say that even adults will be building this kit and enjoying it at the same time.
